I have known and worked with Becky Lisle for several years and do not hesitate in recommending her unequivocally for school visits.
Not only has Becky been in regularly over the years to talk to groups of Year 7 about her work and the writing process, but she was also involved in a ground-breaking project with us last year. The project ran for several weeks working with two schools in real time via computers to work together on pieces devised by Becky, creative artist on the team. The end result was a marvellous booklet which contained the background, the pupils' work and information about Becky herself.
